I have been a Fedora user since Fedora 7. Then, I was simply messing around with a new thing. When Fedora 12 came about, I devoted my personal desktop to it. Now, I use Fedora for all my everyday tasks. I'm pretty loyal to KDE. Some of my favorite applications are Firefox, Blogilo, Kontact, Kopete, BibleTime, DigiKam, KSnapshot, Amarok, K3b, and Dragon Player. I also use LibreOffice.

What else can I tell you? The folks at the Fedora Forums [1] have been my lifeline many times. They are the ones who helped me, in the beginning, to transition from the other popular OS to Linux.

So, a little about me now. I have 3 kids heading to junior college in the fall. I live in the Pacific Northwest and I commute about 700 miles a week to work and back. Never fear. I have an economy car that lightens my commuting impact.

Update 3/31/2015

Well, my kids are now all through Jr. College and off to bigger and better things. I am actually taking classes at the University of Phoenix. For me, online school is the way to go. I will be graduating in June of 2016 with a B.S. in Information Security. Along with that, I plan on getting a few certifications under my belt before graduation.

I still frequent the Fedora Forums. And now we have Google+ to network around the world. There is always the old faithful IRC.

I'm glad to be a part of the Fedora community.
